During Full Moon Open Lines, Tony from Green Valley, Arizona recalled being shown a mysterious vial by his supervisor at a dollar store in Northern California. He said the plastic jar was filled with two objects that appeared to be toes. According to Tony, the mostly rubbed off label revealed the floating fragments were from a biochemistry lab. Tony said his manager turned the vial over to the police, who concluded the strange contents were beans.
Mike from Reno, Nevada told George about shadow people that have apparently attached themselves to his wife. Mike said she has witnessed these entities around her bed, as well as when she was in high school, where one purportedly tripped a boy that had angered her. According to Mike, his wife sees several different color shades of shadow people. Mike also reported on strange paranormal activity in their son's bedroom that may be related.
Bo in Michigan shared a UFO sighting he had as a teenager in Port Richey, Florida. Bo said the craft he and his friend saw measured a half mile long by a quarter mile wide and high. Fourteen smaller ships departed the large craft and then it disappeared, he added. Stan in Arkansas announced that he is the prophet spoken about in The Beatles song "Come Together." Stan said his mission is to save the planet from the New World Order and spread the message of God's love.
In the first half of the show, George spoke with author and astrological consultant Bruce Scofield about Mayan astrology. Scofield described the Maya as "expert observers" of the sky, able to accurately predict eclipses and the movement of planets. For the Maya there was no distinction between astronomy and astrology, he added. Venus was very important in Mayan thought, Scofield explained, noting how they derived a special numerical relationship of 5-to-8 from watching the planet's passage between Earth and the Sun.
Scofield touched on the Mayan calendar and 2012 as well. According to Scofield, the calendar does not end at 2012, but is more "like an odometer turning over in a car." He pointed out that there are Mayan inscriptions with numbers that go beyond 2012. Scofield thinks the Maya anchored the end point of their calendar to a time when the winter solstice would be passing through the galactic equator of the Milky Way. The Mayans thought this dark-band in the stars was a road or portal to the underworld, he added.
